The storyline oscillates between 2060s and pre-independence era and showcases three generations. And it has more than one pivotal character. There is Kanshi Ram and Kusum in the long ago times of early 1900s and there Lipi and Ravi from the futuristic age of 2062. In between, there is Shakuntala, Manohar, Meena, Vinod and Aryan. Each one plays an important part in the plot which is basically the normal household saga of struggle, differences of opinions, tug of war for power and authority with streaks of betrayal and some romance. Every generation has its share of struggle. But there is something that is common between all three generations- a secret that has been hidden in a false ceiling and passed on unwillingly to the next generation.

I would not be lying if I said that I was hooked on to Hell to Pay from the first chapter itself. Half way through the book, I had already started thinking like Emily. Making the characters seem extremely lively and realistic is just one of the good things about Hell to Pay.
